SEELEY LAKE - The Seeley-Swan High School (SSHS) Music Department held its Winter Concert Dec. 6. Under the direction of Music Director Kaytee Ambrozich, band and choir students entertained with several pieces, including both traditional music and holiday selections.

Following the full choir performance, the audience was treated to three soloists and one trio. Senior Cera Strumpfer sang a classical piece, "Into the Night" with piano accompanist Laura Morris from Missoula.

Sophomore Chloe Robbins sang "Try Everything" from the movie "Zootopia."

The Seeley-Swan High School Choir sang four selections at their Winter Concert, Dec. 6

Junior Elizabeth Done sang her first solo "Auld Lang Syne" acapella. Ambrozich said Done approached her one week ago and asked if she could sing a solo. Ambrozich typically likes more preparation but was willing to hear Done sing before telling her to work on it for the Spring Concert.

"So she sang it for me," said Ambrozich. "I was blown away how prepared she was. I said, 'Okay, yeah you can sing that.'"

Trio Senior Cera Strumpfer, Mary Strumpfer and Abram Pocha sang "Hallelujah" while Abram accompanied on the piano. While it had the same melody as Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, the lyrics were rewritten by Cloverton and retitled "A Hallelujah Christmas."

The band closed out the concert with four selections. The whole band played percussion in the last song, "African Bell Carol."

"I want to thank the students for putting up with all my craziness," said Ambrozich. "They have done a great job this semester and I'm really proud of all of them."
